When I look at System Preferences > Java > Update, I see
Your system has the recommended version of Java.
Java 7 Update 79
java version "1.7.0_71"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_71-b14)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.71-b01, mixed mode)
In addition to that, I also have the Java from Apple/Oracle installed as well (when first prompted to install when opening a Java-based app when there's no Java yet installed)
- Is Java 7 Update 79 == jdk1.7.0._71.jdk? Or are these separate?
When running some thing with Java, there is always the following:
objc: Class JavaLaunchHelper is implemented in both /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.7.0_71.jdk/Contents/Home/jre/bin/java and /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.7.0_71.jdk/Contents/Home/jre/lib/libinstrument.dylib. One of the two will be used. Which one is undefined.
I'd be more than willing starting from scratch had I understood the steps to do that properly (remove, re-install). If it matters, am running OS X 10.10.
